: [drinking tea
] This ain't bad. Badger
: There's a trick to it. Wood alcohol. Mal
: Now, we're favored guests, treated to the finest in beverages that make you blind.
: Captain Reynolds. Heard you was in town. Thought we might have a bit of a sit-down. Mal
: Prefer a bit of a "piss off". Badger
: I'm very sorry. Did I give you the impression I was askin'?
: How would you even set up a meet, man won't deal with you? Badger
: Know a place he'll be. Safe place. Using some new tech gun scans. High class, too. Won't let me in there. You might slip in. Of course, you couldn't buy an invite with a diamond the size of a testicle. I got my hands on a couple.
[Mal and Jayne struggle to not laugh
: Of invites.
: [mimicking Badger's Cockney accent
] Sure, I got a secret; more 'n one. Don't seem likely I tell 'em to you, now, do it? Anyone off Titan colony knows better 'n to talk to strangers. You're talkin' loud enough for the both of us, though, ain't ya? I've met a dozen like you. Skipped off-home early. Minor graft jobs here and there. Spent some time in the lockdown, but less than you claim. And you're, what, a petty thief with delusions standing? Sad little king of a sad little hill. Badger
: Nice to see someone from the old homestead. River Tam
: Not really. Call me if anyone interesting shows up. Badger
: I like her. Jayne
: [Whispering to the crew after River leaves
] That there - exactly the kind of diversion we could have used.
: Won't deal with me direct. He's takin' an irrational dislike. Jayne
: What happened? He see your face?
: You backed out of a deal last time. Left us hangin'? Jayne
: Hurt our feelings. Mal
: You recall why that took place? Badger
: Had a problem with your attitude, is why. Felt you was - what's the word? Jayne
: You're late. Mal
: You're lying. Badger
: [looks at Mal in disbelief
] What did you just say to me? Mal
: You're well aware we landed two hours before we planned to with all the goods you sent us after intact, ready to roll. So your decision to get tetchy, say we're late... means you're lookin' to put us on the defensive right up front. Which means something's gone wrong. It didn't go wrong on our end. So why don't we start again with you tellin' us what's up. Badger
: You're later than I'd like.
: Crime and politics, little girl. Situation is always... fluid. Jayne
: The only fluid I see here is the puddle of piss refusing to pay us our wage.
: Wheel never stops turning, Badger. Badger
: That only matters to the people on the rim.
: What were you in the war? That big war you failed to win? You were a Sergeant, yeah? Sergeant Malcolm Reynolds... balls and bayonets brigade. Big, tough veteran. Now you got yourself a ship and you're a Captain. Only I think, you're still a Sergeant, see? Still a soldier. A man of honor in a den of thieves. Well this is my gorramn den, and I don't like the way you look down on me. I'm above you, better than! Businessman see? Roots in the community. You're just a scavenger. Mal
: Well, maybe I'm not a fancy gentleman like you, with your... very fine hat. But I do business. We're here for business.
